Extor Tablet Uses

Extor tablet is used for the treatment of hypertension or high blood pressure. It contains the active ingredients Valsartan and Amlodipine. Valsartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) that helps lower blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels. Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker that is also used to treat high blood pressure and coronary artery disease. Extor helps blood flow easier by blocking a substance that can cause tightening of the blood vessels. High blood pressure can lead to severe problems like strokes, heart attacks, or kidney diseases if not dealt with, therefore medicines like Extor are prescribed for the management of hypertension to keep these problems under control.
